Looming Serbia Day On Sunday, Can Maria Spoil The Party???

With Djokovic almost assured to win the men championsip, Serbia could take both titles if JJ triumphs over Maria.

Alhough Maria has generally enjoyed a lot of support in the USA, if the sizeable presence of Serbian-Americans in Ohio who mainly came to root for Djokovic transfer that support to "Is her name Jankovic?", Serbia Day in Cincinnati could become reality on Sunday.

And Zimonjic is in finals with Llodra so that'sthree Serbs in finals.

I really hope JJ can take this, got nothing against Maria but i think JJ could do with the confidence boost going into the US open + she is my favourite Serbian player.

It's definitely not a foregone conclusion that Djoker will win.

I'm feelin' they jealous, like I'm Monica Seles.

Maria
Venus
ANA

The way Djoker has been playing, I think he is sure thning sure to make Sunday a Serbia Day.
Sure JJ has been playing well and better than Maria, but Maria has gone this far with this scrappy game, she must be confident that she can take on anyone on the final (who is not Serena) and win it.

This will be an interesting day

Re: Looming Serbia Day On Sunday, Can Maria Spoil The Party???

For Serbian posters, is the press in Serbia playing up this angle?
From what I hear and read, Novak is already a national hero in Serbia, so the responsability must be on Lady Ja Ja

Tennis is on covers of all newspapers almost every day. Serbian TV station B92 is showing tennis weekly and has reporters in north America for exclusive interviews and stuff ... we get to read about tennis a lot here lately.
